Wondering if the Purcell's run big like the Chuck's do. I am a 1/2 size smaller in the Chuck's. Anyone have both, and do you find that they run big?

I got totally fucked by this. I ordered 1/2 size down on the Varvatos/Purcell Cons and I ended wearing them outside right away, like 8 hours of class back to back and loads of walking, I had blisters when I got home
I'd say get your right size, but that's just my experience :x

Cool, thanks guys. I'm ordering them from zappos, so it's free shipping both ways- easy to return.

Purcells are narrower in the toe box; I wear a half-size larger in Purcells than in Chucks.

Beware, I don't think they're leather.
